was longtime director, of course, head of the fbi. this is someone who is used to looking into various investigations of a criminal nature. but also he has a background and has served on a board of the national center for missing and exploited children. so he certainly has a background and has said that he cares very deeply about the exploitation of children. he had a lot of work to be done. he certainly was going to be looking at whether penn state followed his own procedures, and he has said this publicly, for handling allegations of sexual mis conducond misconduct, especially involving children. >> i know you want to get to that report. susan, we'll get back to you from philadelphia. >>> over the next two hours, you'll be hearing about all of the key players surrounding the pennstate scandal, including joe paterno, the legendary head coach that was dismissed in the wake of the charges. in the statement released today, paterno's family calls him, quote, highly principled and says select emails have been leaked in an attempt to smear his name. we'll also hear more about jerry sandusky
the scene. kusa's jays larson is with us by phone. >> good morning, matt. i am at the scene of an apartment complex where it is being searched at this moment we believe. s.w.a.t. team is out here. if i can set the scene for you, i know on the telephone -- think of a city block blocked off on both sides by police cars and in the very center of the block i believe is kind of where we're seeing the s.w.a.t. team staging. we haven't seen them actually go into this apartment complex at all. we're just seeing them staging out there waiting. we're also not sure whether or not there is a concern inside the building, whether they're just checking things out. we're told they're asking people to evacuate the area but we don't know how many people are being asked -- >> this is a result of the fact that according to reports when this alleged gunman was taken into custody he told police that there might be, a, explosives in another part of the theater. he might have some explosives components in his car and at his home. >> you know, when we talked to people on the scene here, they have a look of grave co

the outside. but one eyewitness described seeing a man inside the theater get up, use a cell phone or at least pretend to use a cell phone and then go out through that emergency exit. he said he thought it was unusual at the time. and a short time later, that emergency exit opened again. this time entering the room was a man dressed in black from head to toe with a gas mask and weapons. kusa's jayce larson is on the phone joining us on the phone from near the scene. jayce, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. right now from the fbi and the atf as well as local police are trying to get to this person's apartment to see if there's anything inside that could be explosive. they have indicated that that is the case. right now there is a ladder from a fire truck that has been elevated into the air, and it's up to the third floor of a brick building. and we can't quite see whether there is anybody at this point going into a window as we had seen earlier in the day. they had been actually using some type of camera on the end of a pole to stick into one of the apartments. it looks like now t
